Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?


Video: Check Out This INSANE Exchange/Finish From Wednesday’s ‘TUF Latin America 2′

(Props: r/MMA)

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we may have just witnessed this generation’s Frye vs. Takayama.

It’s hyperbolic bordering on blasphemous praise, I know, but just give this video a watch and I promise that i will not disappoint. On Wednesday’s episode of TUF: Latin America 2 – a show that I literally had no idea was currently airing, yet alone featured Kelvin Gastelum and Efrain Escudero as coaches — Team Escudero’s Marco Polo Reyes took on Team Gastelum’s Christian Soto in a lightweight elimination round bout.

While I can’t attest to how the first round and half went down, I can say that the finishing sequence was absolutely BONKERS.


Horrible Video of the Day: Amatuer Fighter Gets Tapped Out, Then Craps Himself

(don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…don’t make a Tim Sylvia joke…)

As MMA fans, we’ve seen some rather nasty things occur inside the cage. We’ve seen a guy celebrate his victory by projectile vomiting, we’ve seen a guy lose a fight by…projectile vomiting, we’ve seen ears explodelegs snap in half, the worst cases of staph infection known to man, and a guy’s foot begin to peel off mid fight.

One thing we haven’t been treated to on many occasions, thankfully, is a fighter voiding his bowels in the cage. I mean, sure, there are those rumors about what happened to Chuck Liddell after Rashad Evans snatched the life out of him at UFC 88, and we all know that Tim Syl-no, Jared, you’re better than this. But at an amateur event in Beckley, West Virginia over the weekend, one poor bastard literally got the shit kicked out of him, it seems.

Caution: You might want to put down you breakfast before watching this.


Knockout of the Day: Amitesh Chaubey Starches Jason Solomon in 9 Seconds at SFL 43

To be completely honest, I had all but forgotten that the Super Fight League was still in business, what without the steady Bob Sapp and/or James Thompson freak show fights to draw eyes in and all. But with 43 events now under their belt, it’s safe to say that India’s top/only MMA promotion is still going as strong as their theme song suggests.

Over the weekend, SFL held its aforementioned 43rd event, “Collision Course,” and in the evening’s headlining bout — a lightweight title fight between Jason Solomon and Amitesh Chaubey — the challenger needed just 9 seconds to dispatch the champion with a hellacious right hand.

SportsPotato: Cardinals Center Fielder Peter Bourjos KO’s Teammate With Vicious Sliding Knee

With all the vicious knockouts taking place at Fight Night 75 and Bellator 143 over the weekend, you’d think it would be damn near impossible for any non-combat sport to top MMA in terms of pure violence. But then, the work week rolls in and professional baseball somehow takes the cake.

In the 7th inning of last night’s Cardinals-Pirates game, Pittsburgh third baseman Josh Harrison drilled a shot to center field, drawing in both center fielder Peter Bourjos and left fielder Stephen Piscotty in at break neck speed in an attempt to field the ball. Piscotty opted for a head first dive to make the play, while Bourjos went with a knee-first slide. The resulting collision was undeniably one of the most horrific knockouts in professional baseball history.

Fight Night 75 Highlights/Results: Barnett Decisions Nelson in Slugfest, Uriah Hall Scores the KO of the Century, + More

(via UFC on FOX)

The UFC returned to action on Sunday morning after a nearly unprecedented 3-week hiatus, delivering a star-studded(ish) card from Japan that saw Josh Barnetta lover of Japanese culture if there ever was one, face off against Roy Nelson, inventor and sole proprietor of the “triple bacon cheeseburger” sushi roll, in the evening’s main event.

Despite not competing in the cage since a quick KO loss to Travis Browne in December of 2013, Barnett showed up to the contest looking to be in the best shape of his life, and it paid benefits over the course of the five round affair. “The Warmaster” set a UFC heavyweight record 146 significant strikes and UFC record 95 significant clinch strikes en route to a decision victory over “Big Country,” who you can guarantee got screwed out of a performance bonus by his good buddy Dana White when all was said and done.

After the jump: Highlights from Uriah Hall‘s shocking KO of Gegard Mousasi, Diego Brandao‘s slightly less shocking KO of Katsunori Kikuno, and more.


MMA In the Wild: Bully Picks Fight With Blind Kid, Receives Instant Karma

I can’t even fathom what level of coward/scumbag/sadist you’d have to be to pick a fight with a blind kid, but as a guy who spends most of his days watching “street justice” videos, I’m *almost* glad the skater punk (pictured lying in a heap above) did, if only for the swift and brutal retribution he received as a result.

This Might Be the Most Tito Ortiz-ian Interview Ever [VIDEO]

“I watched one of the biggest names in the world of…any martial arts or any boxing or anything is Muhammad Ali.”

“Ali was the first people’s champ and he did great for his heritage and his race.”

“To be even named…on that type of a level…If I can even walk in one of his footsteps, I’ve been an amazing job at mixed martial arts.”

“Through the 18 years I’ve been competing, I think it’s just self-right that…so many fans get back to me.”

FYI, the question was “Why did you change your nickname?” Tito Ortiz >>>>>> Ms. Teen South Carolina

VIDEO: Ryan Hall Turns Frantz Slioa Into a Pretzel on ‘TUF 22: Episode 2′

Being a Jiu Jitsu black belt with a penchant for heel hooks, it would be easy to compare TUF 22 competitor Ryan Hall to Rousimar Palhares, and we’re sure that many an MMA website out there already has. Thankfully, that’s where the comparisons begin and end, as last night’s fight between Hall (of team Faber) and Team McGregor’s Frantz Slioa proved outright that not all leglock masters are homicidal lunatics incapable of empathy.

Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber Combine For the Greatest UFC Tonight Interview Ever [Video]

(The gang engages in a rousing game of Fuck, Marry, Kill: Dana White, Ronda Rousey, and Bigfoot Silva)

I may not having been putting much faith into the 22nd season of The Ultimate Fighter, because, you know, it’s the 22nd goddamn season of The Ultimate Fighter (Unofficial tagline: “Where not even the coaches fight, because whatever, fuck you.”), but after seeing Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber‘s amazing interview on last night’s edition of UFC Tonight, I might just have to see how this season plays out. It’s a testament to both the salesmanship of McGregor and the unflappable likeability of Faber.

For close to 15 minutes, the two coaches playfully bickered about everything from pay-per-view numbers to whether or not TJ Dillashaw is a “snake in the grass,” all while hosts Kenny Florian and Brian Stann tried to contain their laughter and occasionally chimed in. But what separated this interview from most was the near complete lack of malice between the two — perhaps because they aren’t actually scheduled to fight anytime soon. It was like watching two old friends argue about who was the better high school athlete, in that you could sense a mutual respect underneath it all (despite McGregor’s early assertion that Faber was “harmless”). Even when McGregor was aiming his best zingers at the members of Team Alpha Male, Faber never rose above the level of “slight amusement.”

VIDEO: WMMA Fighter Monique Bastos Chokes Out Would-Be Mugger

Reason #1001 Not to Rob *Anyone* in Brazil: If they aren’t ready to lay you out with a 2×4, chances are they know Jiu-Jitsu.

It seems like fairly obvious advice, but it’s something I bet Wesley Sousa de Araujo (aka the desperate sumbitch in the video above) wish had known before he and a friend attempted to steal strawweight fighter Monique Bastos‘ phone on her way to Jiu-Jitsu class Tuesday night.
